Little seemed to come of it.- The Paris conferences and the first weeks of the New York conferences " seemed merely to emphasize- ihe •'"•cleavage between Russia and the ;Englisn-speaking countries. Then, four weeks ago, Hussia . begtin to show • signs of softening. She decided, that once a disarmament plan was setup, she would not demand the right to veto the decisions of its enforcement agencies. She compromised on Triests, ,on freedom of Danube traffic, and other matters. Having proposed general disarmament, she actually began demobilizing her vast army *of occupation in Europe.. -*!

Burkhalter while he was still in armed service at Biarritz American University in France last January, has netted him $1,000. Burkhalter, former chairman of the journalism department of Baylor University, Waco, Texas, yesterday was announced iirst prize winner in a contest sponsored by the Palmer Foundation, philanthropic organization dedicaled io the promolion of the Golden Hule and world peace. Adjudged second best of several hundred letlers submilted was that of Charles M. Reinoehl, emeritus professor of education at the University of Arkansas, Fayetleville, who will receive $500. H. W. Stilwell, superinlendent of Texarkana schools and foundation president, announced the awards. Burkhalter outlined a plan utilizing the schools, press, radio, stage and screen presentations and various contests. Reinoehl proposed a program for schools where, he said, Golden Rule principles can be "practiced in every classroom, laboratory, shop and gymnasium." The Palmer foundation was originated and endowed by C .E. Palmer, southern Arkansas news paper publisher, who said he was convinced that a movement promoting the Golden Rule could ii given momentum, change the thinking of the world in one generation. In outlining his winning plan Burkhalter wrote: "This varied approach, is the more necessary in a democracv such as the United Slales, than in a totalitarian nation since we cannot devise and enforce such a pro gram. The American people mus be left free to accept or rejec such education of this type as is offered them, no matler who the sponsors may be. xxx "The primary planks in a pro gram for making Ihe world over again in order to prevent :"uture wars, rand lo guarantee to all peo pies everywhere the fundamenta freedoms, security, and reason able plenty of material goods, in elude increased literacy :'or every body and the elimination of prej udice, intolerance, and hatred, anc the suppression of greed."

Little Rock, Dec. 16 — IfP)— J.W. Sanders, Pine Bluff, was appointed by Governor Laney today as a member of the White Boys Industrial School's board of truslees. Sanders was named to replace T. R. Green, former chairman of .he board, who resigned afler complaining to the governor over management of the -institution. Following an investigation, the governor retained H. P. Hargis as superintendent of the school. Statements gathered by Commit- 00 Counsel George Meader during 1 three-week trip lo Europe laid .he blame for this situation on the failure of allempls lo unify Ger- nany economically under terms of Ihe 1945 Polsdam Big Three agreement Blaming the French for blocking olans to set up central German administrative services, Ihe slate- menls obtained by Meader from army of occupation and military government authorities said the United Stales had been forced lo slop Ihe dismantling of German plants for reparations — most of which would go to Russia — because of the threatened financial drain on this country. Beyond thai, Ihe statements indicated lhal even if economic unification of Germany were brought about immediately, it might' take two years for the Germans lo be- j come sufficiently self supporting to require no further food shipments from the United Stales. Meader. whose preliminary report on olher phases of his inquiry was crilicized by the War Department, made the documents available from the commitlee files at the request of a reporter who asked to see the army and AMG answers to questions the allorncy had propounued. Committee Democrats voted against continuing the investigation, but Republican members made Header's report public.

"The food is being dislribuled on Ihe basis of how the population collaborates with the local Communist government," Wherry said. "Those who collaborate and ihose who work in Russian-operated i!ac- lories gel more to eat than those who don't. What is true in Austria certainly must be true in the Russian zone of Germany."

LEMAY Washington, Dec. 16 (/P).—Plans for disposing of the $145,000,000 war-built Big and Little Inch pipelines, termed the "Muscle Shoals of World War II," headed today toward a rulin eral Tom Clar by Atlorney Gen- ip of Greece and Denmark — • __, emphasized that persistent rurribrs' of an engagement still were only rumors. Although the political aspects of such a marriage were debated heatedly in left-wing circles, where a strong faction disapproves of the present Greek royal family, there was a widespread tendency to "keep politics out of it" so far as possible and at the same time to play down Prince Philip's connection with Greece. Such is the feeling of most Britons for the royal family that there would be strong support for the 20- year-old princess' marrying whom she chose unless the government, whose approval is necessary, or a substantial section of the public regarded her choice as definitely un- suilable. Britain's upper crusters appear solidly in favor of 25-year-old Philip, and the current oubreak of stories about him in the news papers could be interpreted, in part, as a campaign to "sell" him lo Ihose elemenls of the population whose distaste for King George II of Greece might nffect' their feeling for his second cousin, young Philip. The question is whelher permanent use of the 24 and 20 inch conduits for natural gas would promote a monopoly in the oil industry. A majority of the House Surplus Property commitlee filed a report over the weekend favoring 'transport of gas. The two lines run :'rom Texas to New York and Philadelphia. However, one of the five committeemen, Rep. Rooney (D-NY, retused to sign the report, holding that disposal of the pipelines for gas would "perpetuate ine monopoly which the big oil companies now have through their own pipelines and tanker transportalion." Roney called for .transport of oil. The lines occasionally were built by the government to move oil at a time America's tanker fleet was being riddled by German submarines. The four committeemen signing the majority report — Chairman Slaughter (D-Mo) and Reps. Davis (D-Tenn), Rizley (R-Okla) and Civil Suit Names Pulaski County Couple Little Rock, Dec. .16 — (IP)— A civil action alleging thai a Pulaski county couple failed to return $74,738, obtained by contending the money mighl be confiscalcd by the federal governmenl because the owners were of German descent, has been filed in U. S. districl court here. The suit was brought against Mr. and Mrs. Lawren W. Baker by An- lonius P. Eibler, Ludlow, Mo., in his own right and as executor and only beneficiary of the estale of his brother, Charles V. Eibler. wr died at Ludlow last Jan. 0. It alleges lhal Ihe Bakers persuaciu t Ihe Elibler brothers in January, 1944, to turn over to them $145,800 on grounds that the Federal Bureau of Investigalion had been checking the Eibler bank accounls. The complaint further alleges thai the Bakers returned $69,061 of the original sum to Antonius Eibler last July: 15 but have kept the remainder. Federal Judge Thomas C. Trimble has signed a temporary restraining order preventing four Little Rock banks from releasing any funds the Bakers may have on deposit. Hearing on Astoius Eibler's petition for an injunction to prevent the Bakers :'rom disposing of any of the $74,738 of his money he alleges is in i their possession has been set for Dec. 23. In the cotton textile industry the value of the output of the four largest companies together is less than 10 per cent of the total. Robertson (R-ND) declared: The committee majority said ihe property should go to the highest bidder, for either oil or gas transmission, but stressed that testimony "is heavily weighted in favor of gas utilization." In previous bids, all rejected gas interests offered $85,000,00( while the top for oil transport wa $66,000,000.

"Mr. Rooney xxx believes that the use of the lines for gas tends to perpetuate a monopoly in the petroleum industry. We do not think there is any evidence :'n the record to substanliate this belief. "However, it is our conclusion that the administrator should refer any contract for sale to the attorney general ior his inspection and opinion." Harold L. Ickes, former secretary of the interior, and Thurman Arnold, foriner chief of the Justice Department Anti-trust Division, said during the committee hearings that the disposal problem parallels the controversy over Muscle Shoals after the first world war, when that issue was joined between private and public utility proponents. The big Alabama power project now is a part of the government's Tennessee Valley authorily. Robert M. Litllejohn, War Assets administrator, already has let it be known he intends to put the pipelines disposal problem of oil vs gas directly up to Congress.

A DAILY READER ANSWER: My dear child, marrying a man you have never seen is like the proverbial folly of buying a pig in a poke. Don't do such a crazy thing, in marriage, personality counts more than the virtues in making it a success. A man might have very good quality so far as character goes and yet be so hideously ugly lhal he would be repug- nanl lo you, or he mighl have little mannerisms and ways that got on your nerves'so that you couldn't endure him. And the same thing goes for women. We all know pretty girls who never have a date and homely girls who arc belles. We know wives who are lazy and Irifling and nagging and poor housekeepers by their husbands, and other wives that I am? L . R.

About four years ago the Uniled States Public Health Service established G2 treatment centers in this country. Nearly 150,000 paticnls have been treated in these centers with a combination of penicillin and other methods.

Foolish M°ve So don't be foolish enough to marry any man sight unseen. Heaven knows husbands have enough peculiaritcs thai a wife has lo overlook even when she has done all Ihe sleuthing beforehand that-she could. And don't think that you can judge anybody by their lelters. II can't bo done. For we all succumb to the temptation lo go romantic and poetic and generally put our best foot foremost when we put pen to paper. Especially if we are writing to somebody who has never seen us. Anyway, 17 is too young for you to marry and go so far away from home. Don't do it. ANSWER: I wish I could have printed all of your letter because it is a marvelous and a hear warming story of a boy having the courage to meet his fate and conquer it. But, son, for every victory we win we have to pay, and the price tag on your success is lonli- ness. While olher boys and girls were going to school and having dates and dancing and amusing themselves, you were toiling upward in the night studying, working, educating yourself, filling yourself for a career. And so you lost touch with your own generation. The boys and girls of your age are still children. You are a man, wilh a man's knowledge and experience and ambilions, and you have nolhing in common with the adolescent crowd. »You would bore them and they would bore you. It wouldn't be possible for you to chum up together. Y9U must find your companionship with Oder men, and the best way for you to do that is by joining men's clubs, especially those to which the men belong who are in your line of work.
